SWEDEN — Alfa Laval has acquired Scanjet, a global supplier of tank cleaning equipment and solutions for marine, offshore and industrial applications.
Alfa Laval said the acquisition will extend its broad tanker offering, creating a more comprehensive product portfolio for cargo tanks.
"Scanjet’s intelligent tank management offerings will be a valuable complement to Alfa Laval’s sustainable marine offering as they reduce the water usage and energy consumption connected with tank cleaning," according to Alfa Laval.
The company said the acquisition will also support customer efficiency at every stage of cargo handling.
Scanjet employs about 150 people and has factories in Sweden, Poland and Indonesia, and a turnover of about SEK 300 million (US$28.1 million).
